Applied Econometrics

1. The Paradigm of Econometrics

Econometrics: Paradigm

Theoretical foundations

Microeconometrics and macroeconometrics

Behavioral modeling: Optimization, labor

supply, demand equations, etc.

Statistical foundations

Mathematical Elements

Model building the econometric model

Mathematical elements

The underlying truth is there one?

What is bias in model estimation?

Why Use This Framework?

Understanding covariation

Understanding the relationship:

Estimation of quantities of interest such as

elasticities

Prediction of the outcome of interest

Controlling future outcomes using knowledge of

relationships

Measurement as Observation

Population Measurement

Theory

Characteristics

Behavior Patterns

Application: Is there a relationship between

investment and capital stock? (10 firms, 20

years)

Course Objective

Develop the tools needed to read

about with understanding and to

do empirical research in

economics using the current

body of techniques.

Prerequisites

A previous course that used regression

Mathematical statistics

Matrix algebra

We will do some proofs and derivations

We will also examine empirical applications
